Florida Teacher Blog Hop

I'm so happy to be blogging about my city and state. Welcome to the Sunshine State! Enjoy yourself as you take a tour around our wonderful state! Grab some freebies along the way, and be sure to enter to win our Bundles of Sunshine!

Did you know that I'm from a town that some of you may have visited during your Spring Break? I'm from Panama City Beach, Florida. It's known for Spring Break but it has way more to offer than just that! 

One of my favorite spots is Shell Island. 

Shell Island is well-known as Panama City Beach’s most spectacular natural asset.  The pristine sand dunes, crystal clear waters, and boundless raw beauty of the island make it a one-of-a-kind retreat for visitors from all walks of life.  This natural asset serves as a haven for beach goers and swimmers who like to explore the emerald blue-green waters as well as a playground for families who enjoy spending the day searching for unique sea shells.

The very best way to reach the island is by boarding the Shell Island Shuttle, which is located in St. Andrews State Park.  

A funny thing happens to people once they visit Shell Island.  Maybe it is the salt air.  Perhaps it is the warm gulf breeze.  It might even be the sparkling white sandy beaches.  Whatever it happens to be, it entices people out on the water.  Seemingly normal, rational people take one trip across Grand Lagoon to this mystical place called Shell Island, and they can’t seem to get enough!  Like all the Islanders who have gone before you, I can assure you that your Shell Island experience is one you won’t forget!  See you at the Island!

I hope you enjoyed some of my pictures. To see more pictures on Instagram click on the camera.
